Joyce and Jim Lavene take an interesting look at witches in their new paranormal mystery series…created a world where magic and mundane live together yet separate-even in the same households.

Once upon a time in Wilmington, North Carolina, three witches ran a curio shop named Smuggler’s Arcane. But as the years passed, their magical powers started to fade—leaving them no choice but to conjure up a retirement package…  

Before they could blink their eyes or twitch their noses, Molly, Elsie, and Olivia somehow became eligible for AARP. But they can’t fly off to Boca Raton just yet. First they must give up their magic, recruit and train three new witches, and pass on their cherished spellbook.

They’ve barely begun to consider potential practitioners when Olivia winds up dead and their spellbook is stolen. To honor their friend and reclaim their spells, Molly and Elsie are about to go wand-to-wand with a dangerous young witch more powerful than the trio was in their prime. And this time they’re going to need more than magic up their sleeves…

  1. What a great prize package. I don’t know if I’m going to have time in the next couple days to do it but thanks for doing this.

  2. I must be a very very stupid witch, everytime I follow any of the url’s I get to someones blog with many entries. I can’t find the “magic words”. I am not finding the right places to look. I really like the idea and I love the prize but I guess I’ll have to go with my 1 free entry because I’ve spent a lot of time going nowhere. Good luck to my smarter entrants
